House Votes to Prevent Fraudulent Health Insurance Subsidy Payments
Earlier this summer, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services released hundreds of pages of regulations to implement the 2010 health care law. Included in the newly released regulations was an announcement that the federal government would not verify that individuals seeking subsidies to purchase health insurance through the law’s exchanges are qualified to receive such assistance. This week, the House passed H.R. 2775, the No Subsidies Without Verification Act, which would require that accurate verification systems be in place before subsidies are disbursed. I supported this legislation in order to ensure that only those individuals who are actually eligible to receive assistance do so and prevent fraud and abuse of taxpayer dollars.

Responsibilities include front desk reception, providing phone support, constituent services, processing mail, conducting research and working with the staff on special projects. Consideration will be given to reliable, motivated individuals with excellent written and verbal communication skills.
